Lohan Escapes Jail

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

A Los Angeles County Judge issued an arrest warrant for Lindsay Lohan for her failure to appear in court on May 20th. Lohan, who was scheduled to appear for her probation hearing for a 2007 driving under the Influence conviction, failed to show up. Instead she was in Cannes, France, enjoying the famous yearly film festival. Lohan claims her passport was stolen and therefore she was unable to get back to the U.S. But Beverly Hills Judge, Marsha Revel, had no sympathy for Lohan. Revel said Lohan should have skipped her France trip or made sure she was in the U.S. in time for her hearing. The Judge also commented that “actions speak louder than words” and that Lohan has “a history of not keeping scheduled appointments … I couldn’t have been more clear about the priority of this case and getting things done.” However, thanks to her representation Lohan was spared arrest when she landed in the U.S. Lohan’s $10,000 bond was posted and the arrest warrant was then recalled. See, Vehicle Code Sections 23152(a), (b), Warrants, Probation Violations.
